Sept. 11 claim stirs UW probe

30-06-2006 22:21

The Neo-Fascists responsible for this current Madness have been after this man from day one, because of the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance, which seeks to diffuse tensions, promote communication between the faiths, and has been a vocal critic of the Bush/PNAC Regime's illegal military operations.

It's interesting that the university plans to review the professor and his course, rather than investigating the Official Conspiracy Theory of 911, put forth by the LIARS in DC, and why they haven't been able to provide compelling evidence to support their Theory in nearly five years.

Israeli assault on Gaza threatens wider Middle East conflagration

30-06-2006 19:31

With each day that passes, Israel’s attempt to justify military aggression as a response to the capture of an Israeli soldier becomes less credible. Tel Aviv has signaled not only its intention to bring down the Hamas-led Palestinian Authority (PA), but also its readiness to inflict massive destruction to Gaza’s infrastructure and heavy civilian casualties in order to do so.

Former IDF on Realities of Gaza: it was NOT a kidnapping

30-06-2006 18:31

The selective reporting on recent events in the ME worldwide supports the fact of a pro-Israel bias in the bulk of the world's media. Very few reporters question the official narrative, and even less include the context of earlier, deadlier Israeli incitement and widespread murder of civilians, Opertaion First Rain, nor the fact that these "teenagers" as the media refers to them, were soldiers, acting on behalf of the armchair warriors, who've called for and planned these operations for months.

NoBorders-ARC Picket at Solihull Immigration Centre

30-06-2006 17:31

Birmingham NoBorders and Birmingham Anti-Racist Campaign held their monthly picket today (30 June) at the Immigration Reporting Centre in Solihull. Once again, they were there to protest against the inhumane treatment of asylum seekers throughout the border regime, from the weekly reporting, snatch squads and dawn raids, to deportation and detention centres.

Besides the usual banners and placards, chanting, noise-making and leafleting, there was also a visual consisting of hand-made 'grave stones', from the ARC vigil last week, bearing the details and stories of asylum seekers who took their own lives while awaiting the Home Office's decision or incarcerated in detention centres. Their names were read out and the stories of some were told.

Just before 2pm, two asylum seekers, handcuffed and accompanied by two police officers, arrived and were 'delivered' to Sandford House, in a live demonstration of what this place is all about. They were dressed in white jump suits and the police were carrying their clothes and stuff in clear plastic bags, presumably because they had been nicked whilst working in a factory or something. Obviously the protesters couldn't do more than angrily shout "Let them go" and "Asylum is not a crime".

Previous pickets: May | April | November 2005

Australia: Bayer´s Levitra marketing criticized

30-06-2006 17:12

YOU might call it a hard bargain. Men who take the impotence pill Levitra but still fail to rise to the challenge will be given their money back.
But a leading specialist says this marketing thrust is unethical because it creates unrealistic expectations about the effectiveness of drugs.
